I'm including a few closeups of my February tag. At the top, I've included my "x" and "o" kisses and hugs from some of Tim's Idea-ology cirque alphabet stickers (part of my January win prize pack -- thanks Tim!!). I also had a red gem brad that I absolutely had to include with this tag tie. I thought it really went well with the sheen given off by the clear embossing over the stenciled harlequin pattern.
I love the stamp that Tim used for his sentiment. While waiting to purchase that stamp, I decided just to go with the simplicity of "love" for my chalkboard sentiment. I added some flourishes for detail.
However, I just couldn't leave well enough alone. I wanted to add something to the chalkboard. I went for some hearts cut out of dictionary pages and then drew some hearts on them with my Distress Markers. After adhering them to my "chalkboard", I outlined them with a black archival pen.
I need to get back to work. Hugs to you all on this wonderful day. Mary Elizabeth
